Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram by Angel, Shellana, Mariz & Tiffany - 5:36

This video was created by Mariz, Tiffany, Shellana, and Angel. We provide brief background information on the diagram. Also, we explain the plotting of stars according to the axes, absolute magnitude vs. apparent magnitude, and the main sequence. In the beginning and end, there is a "murder" episode of "Hertzsprung & Russell". The marshmallows represent the stars and the party you see them lining up for is an exclusive one just for main sequence stars. Sirius A (main sequence star) was murdered, and everyone suspects Sirius B (white dwarf) of committing the crime. Everyone know that Sirius B is jealous of A's fame and fortune. The detectives investigate, which leads to the lesson on the H-R Diagram. We apologize if the subtitles are not synchronized with the video.
